Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the questions we get asked by our customers
What is Whole Supp?
Whole Supp provides nutritionally complete food for modern lifestyles. Built on transparency from farm to formulation. Whole Supp is plant based and vegan friendly. Every serving contains 5g of BCAA’s, 31g of protein, 13g of fat, 7g of fiber and over 30+ vitamins and minerals. Whole Supp is a whole-body meal, supporting health, growth and recovery through optimal nutritional values. Whole Supp is what we call “SMART FOOD”-it just makes sense!
What is the taste / texture like?
Most people don’t like meal shakes, we get it, we used to be the same. They often taste artificial and have a strange gritty texture to them. We designed Whole Supp with natural flavouring (100% cacao and vanilla bean) to prevent this. The mix of plant-based proteins also ensures a smooth texture even when you don’t use a blender. The result: all our customers rave about the taste.
What makes Whole Supp different from other meal shakes?
Most shakes contain ingredients that aren’t great for you and leave you with stomach pain/bloating. Whole Supp contains 13 incredibly powerful plant-based superfoods, all in large enough quantities to drive an impact on your energy and recovery. It’s also gluten-free and filled with prebiotics, making it easy on your stomach and easy to take just before or after your workout. An added bonus is that our customers always love the taste that isn’t overly sweet or taste like chemicals thanks to natural flavouring like 100% cacao for chocolate or vanilla bean for vanilla.
Is Whole Supp a weight loss product?

Whole Supp is designed to include low GI carbohydrates such as oats and restricts the amount of free sugars to very low levels.
Is Whole Supp low FODMAP?
Yes! There are very small quantities of FODMAP in our Whole Supp products mainly coming as a trace from our pea protein and cherry extracts, but our product is entirely compatible with the “restrict” phase of the low FODMAP diet. We include no dairy or wheat, only low FODMAP veggies and have used alternative grains such as low FODMAP oats.
What is MCT oil?
MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglyceride and is healthy fats extracted from coconuts. MCT supports gut health while increasing the number of ketones the body produces. MTC turns over the ketones quickly for immediate energy. The oils are digested directly through the liver, providing the body with immediate energy as opposed to storing it for future use.
What are superfoods?
A superfood is a nutrient-rich food that contains an above-average amount of antioxidants, fiber, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals per gram. Whole Supp has both super-greens (spinach and broccoli) and super-reds (beetroot and cherries) that fit into the category of superfoods.
